There are numerous writers' groups in Northern Virginia offering support to writers in all genres. They take various forms - everything from serious 'writers-who-want-to-be-published' groups to the 'let's-eat-and-write' kind. For fledgling writers, group support can be vital in providing not only a forum for their work but also a means to meet like minded souls, exchange learning experiences, receive critiques and gather tips of the trade - whether traditional or self publishing is the goal.
Loudoun County Writers Group meet regularly and have members working in all genres. Northern Virginia Writers Guild meet monthly, in Fairfax VA, and welcome all writers and would-be writers to trade tips and review work.
The Wine Press Blog provides tips on how to choose the right group for you. By being honest about what they want, and with a little research, writers can locate the group that works best for them. Whatever the creative endeavor, most people seem to do better with a little support.
